Life is an adventure, girlfriend trip Niagara-on-the-Lake We’re continuing our series on my favorite Girlfriend Trip destination: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario! We’ve gone to a play, done stand-up paddleboarding, hit the wineries and experienced some great restaurants. We’ve got more to share!

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller

I love that travel quote! Life is an adventure and taking a trip with your girlfriends is a perfect way to experience it!

So, gather the girls, make the plans and take a girlfriend trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. (See how close it is and other details for your girlfriend getaway!)


Huge thanks to the Oban Inn & Spa for inviting us to stay at their beautiful inn! This amazing property has been welcoming guests since 1824 but has been updated to make it current, comfortable and super welcoming for guests. The Oban Inn & Spa is a luxury 4-Diamond boutique hotel overlooks Lake Ontario and the golf course. It is surrounded by elegant and lush gardens (see some of the photos below). It also has an outdoor hot spring and swimming pool. It is easily walkable to the quaint downtown through beautiful homes. (I consider Canada and especially Niagara-on-the-Lake to be super safe and peaceful. We walked home to the Oban Inn & Spa from the Shaw Festival theater and enjoyed the beautiful, moonlit surroundings along the short walk back to the Oban Inn.)

Niagara River, Niagara-on-the-LakeWe loved our visit to the Oban Inn’s world-class OSpa. As you walk into the spa, you feel instantly calm and pampered. The beautiful architecture and peaceful surroundings welcome you with the relaxing scent of lavender. (They use Aveda products which to me always smell heavenly and feel luxurious!) The menu of services confirms that they are dedicated to your health, well-being, beauty and vitality. From facials to warm stone treatments, beautifying body wraps to therapeutic massages, to signature hand and food treatments (aka: manicures and pedicures), their list of amazing spa services could easily be a full day of beauty for you and your girlfriends!

We each were treated to massages by one of their massage pro’s. Upon entering the OSpa, you’re given a luxurious robe and shown to a peaceful changing room. The massage therapist pro talks to you about the massage and any areas that she should or shouldn’t work on. The only problem I have during massages is staying awake! It is so relaxing and warm, smells so good, feels so great – it’s hard to not completely relax and fall asleep! I wanted to enjoy every second so I focused on what she was doing and how awesome it felt! She was very attentive to my ‘problem areas’ and offered some great ideas on how to avoid making knots in my muscles. She gave me some awesome recommendations that I’ve been working on since I returned home. The massage worked it’s magic and our experience in the OSpa at Oban Inn in Niagara-on-the-Lake was wonderful!Oban Inn Spa Niagara on the Lake

After fine dining at the Oban Inn or hitting up the wineries, you might want a little exercise to clear your conscious of your calories 🙂 The Oban Inn makes exercising easy, fun, and spa-like! Plan time to enjoy their Steam Room, Quiet Room, Tranquil Room, Lakeview Conservatory, and State-of-the-art Exercise Room with a view of their beautiful gardens. Or, try their outdoor Hot Springs/Spa with Salt Water Pool with its beautiful water feature. See their website for the full listing of their services and for information on booking a room, a meal, and/or a spa service.

I wish I could take you there to experience the Oban Inn and Spa! The rooms are luxurious, immaculate and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and assisted us with whatever we needed – directions, recommendations, welcoming us back, etc. All guests receive a complimentary breakfast in the restaurant viagra cialis levitra online overlooking the gorgeous gardens. (Of course, you know me!, there is Wifi too!) You can arrange for various packages through them – rooms, meals, tours, tickets to the Shaw Festival, etc. They’ll work with you for a relaxing and memorable girlfriend getaway!
